Does anybody knows what is the minimum or ideal distance between the radiator+fans and a wall without air flow losses?

Hi guys, needing some advice in which custon case I will go for. I would like to know which one would have the best performance/aesthetics/easy maintenance rate. It will be made by MDF, aluminum and glass/acrylic.

Case Project 1
This measures 340mm x 350mm x 370mm (widht x height x lenght) plus the radiator (9x120mm). The front fan is in push and the backside is in pull.

Case Project 2
This one is 435mm x 460mm x 380mm (width x height x lenght). All the non-radiator fans are exhausters. The radiator is mounted like a furniture drawer and the componets inside aren't mounted on the radiator, but at the case roof for air flow improvement.

So, what do you guys think?

I disagree, I like external rads if they're done right.

That would probably make it 100x easier to bleed. Use some quick disconnects on where the tubing exits the chassis so removing it from your loop is simple.

Just a heads up DIY chassis are a PITA and take forever. They're definitely a fun project, but don't plan on being done in a week.
